Secret Diary Of Natalie Marchant, Aged 36

Well what a year being 35 turned out to be. I got engaged, I became a student again and went freelance. I also went to Sicily, which was wonderful.

Now I’ve reached my 37th year I’m really looking forward to seeing what the next 12 months hold.

First of all, there’s the little issue of getting married in my hometown of Vienna next summer.

Then there’s a whopping 20,000-word dissertation on something to do with Diplomacy and International Relations – an idea that I have yet to have.

I realise I’ve neglected my blog somewhat over the last six months. Hopefully, now I’ve settled into my new way of doing things I’ll be able to pick it up again and enthral you all with pics and tales of my travels once again.

I’ve decided not blog about #project366 any more – I increasingly felt it detracted from the pictures themselves – but all my pics are on Instagram and Twitter should you care to follow them.

To everyone has sent me love today, in person or via phone/Facebook/carrier pigeon, it is appreciated more than you’ll ever know.

Much love. x
